RESTAURANT REVIEW: Flame Tree

July 29, 2011 – With a whopping 4 Kenya Tourism Awards under their belts this year, you will never have to worry about service issues at any of the Sarova Hotels, Resort & Game Lodges in East Africa.

The unpretentious Flame Tree Restaurant is no different with it’s amazing service, and is a beautiful dining space with elegant timber patio doors that open on to an expansive al-fresco space where diners can enjoy the Sarova Panafric ambience outdoors.

Situated only five minutes away from the Central Business District in Nairobi, Flame Tree, is an ideal place for lunch meetings with its superb service, a happy hour rendezvous with friends, and a romantic dinner with someone special; all with the gentle accompaniment of a live band.

Aside from ‘Steak Night Friday’ with half kilo steaks and a newly installed specialized German oven, something else to look forward to is the soon-to-be launched seafood and jazz nights on Thursdays.

Capital Lifestyle’s favourites were the Tree Tomato Juice and the Chickens Wings tossed in pili pili!

If you’re a wet-wings person, these might be the best wings in Town! With just a hint of spice balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the glaze, ordering seconds may just be a normal occurrence.  I could comfortably order 50 wings and devour them with great company!

Décor. Earthy, warm colours and wooden accents ensure a relaxing homey environment.

Service. One of the best in Town!  Subtle, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. NO complaints!

Things to look forward to. Live band on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Jazz nights on Thursday will be launched shortly.  Steak Night Friday with half kilo steaks!  Business lunch menus change on a daily basis.

Price. Generous portions and fairly priced.  3-course business lunches will set you back 1300ksh. Salads and starters are around 600ksh and mains run from 1000-1300ksh.

Delicious fresh juices: Tree Tomato, and Apple & Carrot

The Farmer’s Salad looks plain at first glance; but the lightly dressed avocado, sweet bell peppers, and iceberg lettuce are incredible with a burst of flavours.

The Slowly Braised Orange Lamb Shank with Citrus Mash Potatoes and Garden Vegetables at 1200ksh is a delicious steal!  The generous portions and fall-off-the bone lamb shank is a must try.  The orange zest and citrus flavours throughout the dish is a bright twist to the usually savoury lamb flavours.

Tilapia marinated with coconut, tumeric and peanut sauce with steamed rice.  The fish was a little overcooked, but the coconut sauce was so delicious, Capital Lifestyle finished every grain of rice!
